I have been thinking about quitting my PGCE for a couple of weeks now but for some reason I feel very scared about doing so. I have been reading some of your comments and I agree with a number of things that have been said. I have felt lonely on my placement even though I believe I am a very sociable, bubbly person. The work load is quite big but no more than I expected it to be and that isn't whats making me want to leave. To be honest I don't know what it is that I want to do with my life and decided to try teaching because I love children and am good at maths. However although I've quite enjoyed the learning part at uni, since I have been in school I have had second thoughts. Ever since I decided to get on the course (admittedly right at the last minute) I have worried I made the wrong decision and some how it just hasn't felt right. I'm scared that if I leave I'll regret it and in a few months time want to be back on the course. But then I just don't think I'd be feeling like this if that was the case. It's not that I don't think I can cope or anything like that I just don't think the concept of teaching is for me. I was wondering if there is anyone else who is feeling the same or has felt like this before and would be grateful for any advice?
